Nadezhda Savchenko, a Ukrainian political prisoner held in Russia, is confident she will soon be back to Ukraine, her lawyer Ilya Novikov wrote on his Facebook page.
“I visited her yesterday. She is cheerful and fun. Nadiya feels she’ll be back to Kyiv soon. Over the two years, I convinced a few times that her premonitions are coming true more precisely than our expectations with incomplete data. We will see. Kerry is in Moscow, following his meeting with Putin, perhaps there will be some news,” he said.
Novikov said that the defense received the Savchenko’s letter of instruction refusing to file an appeal.
“Ten days after she has been given a copy of her verdict translated into Ukrainian, it will be recognized as legally effective. By then, we will have known what direction the diplomatic negotiations on her release went,” he added.
It was reported earlier that on March 22, the Russia’s Donetsk Court in Rostov region sentenced Nadezhda Savchenko to 22 years in prison.
